August was a hectic month of opening boxes, sorting and finding places to put things. Finally we reached the last 2 boxes.
Now came the fun part, we had to fit things in. Make it feel like home.
This was how we looked on the first night after our belongings had been delivered up to the 30th floor of our apartment, total chaos…
After moving things and rearranging things a few times, gradually we were satisfied. Even found places to put up some of our art work.
Now we had time to enjoy our new home. Time to sit on the balcony with a cuppa and look at the view.
Friends came to visit and brought us a beautiful pot of flowers. They chose well, I love orange and it brightens up the balcony.
But not only friends dropped in. Quite literally we had a man drop in from the sky. He was cleaning the outside windows. A real benefit of apartment living I had not expected, but really appreciate. The body corp looks after all those maintenance jobs.
After settling in we had time to go round to the son’s place and see how the pots and Jack’s sculptures had fitted in.
We were greeted by a beautiful Grevillea in full bloom.
Wandering around the garden paths we could see familiar things.
In the zen garden corner a familiar face peers out at us.
Back home on our balcony my minute pot garden is very easy to care for and I enjoy going out each morning to talk to the plants and see to their needs. No stress, so easy to care for.
Now we are settled in and have no regrets about moving in to this hi-rise, apartment living. Maybe next month we will find time to explore more of this area.
